Owning a pet in the city can be tough. Lack of open space to roam, excessive noise, and tiny dwellings are just a few of the pet-peeves pet-owners face when living in the concrete jungle. Another challenge is finding restaurants that allow (even encourage) patrons to bring along their furry companions. That is, until now.
More often restaurants across the country are opening their doors to humans and their animals. Pet-friendly restaurants can be enjoyed from New York’s Shake Shack to Tampa’s Sail Pavilion on the Riverwalk, but Seattle boasts some of the best places to enjoy an evening out with your pet. With more than 140 options to choose from (according to bringfido.com), pet-owners can enjoy a bite to eat, with their pooches in tow, in just about every neighborhood in the city. We’ve compiled a (very) short list of the many pet-friendly establishments in Seattle:
The Dray – located in Seattle’s Phinney Ridge neighborhood, this restaurant allows dogs being off-leash, so long as they behave.
Prost! – A German pub in West Seattle with good specials and a patio outside that allows pups.
Greenlake Bar and Grill - Serves up affordable fare and cold beers with a great view. Pets are welcome on the patio in summer.
Volunteer Park Café & Marketplace –This Capitol Hill gem has a friendly, communal feel with plenty of dogs and their owners lounging on the front patio with a tall cup of coffee.
